Who are Potential Victims of Financial Crime;

Why are Financial Criminals so successful at committing the same type of financial crimes repeatedly. Do you fit the profile of a financial crimes victims?

The financial crimes perpetrated by financial criminal Charles Ponzi , commonly referred to as the “Ponzi scheme”, are the same type of financial crimes committed presently, on the same type specimen of victims that Mr Ponzi so successfully executed his financial crimes on.

It is a misconception that Charles Ponzi is the originator of financial crime and this type of swindle. With only a slight variation in style this type of financial crime can be traced back as far as 17th century Scotland to Gregor MacGregor, who is infamous for pulling off the biggest fraud in history.

This type of fraud often called a ‘confidence trick‘  because the victims of these financial crimes are ticked in to believing that something that is improbable is possible. Most intelligent people would conclude that only uneducated people can be tricked in to believing in something that does not exist.  Only stupid people are suckers.

The con artist has you already. That’s his first trick,  he is going to convince you (the victim) that you (the victim) are the smartest person in the world and you are going to believe him. I mean it’s true right? You are well educated, intelligent, definitely not naive, not rich maybe, well not one of those “one-percenters’ ” that very one is down on, but lets say comfortable.

Suckers are greedy and you are not. Conservative investments, safe respectable. Sure “take what the traffic will bear” Biz101 and didn’t one of those Wall Street guys say “there is no such thing as a obscene salary”. thats true, they don’t pay you nearly enough for what your talents bring in, you deserve more. He has got you man, and you don’t even know it.

He will never take a large sum of money from you. He will plead with you to invest only what you can afford to loose. It is a little on the risky side, just a little. Past performance… . He will deliver what he promises.

Through out history the victims of this fraud have had common human characteristics. Yeah, you are right you are way too smart to b a victim.

any news about another financial crime investigation. Another billionaire gone astray.

 

Insider trading, its only a crime to get caught. Right? Everyone in the industry does it, a little. Only the really greedy financial criminals are sleazy. Its kind of like getting a good tip on a horse at the track. It’s not like getting filthy rich by smuggling drugs. They don’t put you into a real prison, where you have to worry about dropping the soap. It’s like a country club you can never leave and when you’re accustom to jet-setting around the world in your own Gulfsteam, getting locked up at the club is pretty tough. Billionaire criminals are not a danger to society.

 

The hell they’re not. Financial criminals hurt everyone, you, me, your kids, grand-ma, the girl next door, apple-pie and American-way as we know it. Sorry Ayn Rand but another one of your heroes is tarnished. What say ye;  Republicans, right-wing extremists and their sympathizers. We don’t need more regulation? Maybe we should just put them in a real prison so that these financial gangster will have to shower with Buba.

 

Citizens, Romans, countrymen hear me! The Wall Street Mafia will continue to wreak havoc on our nation untill you tear your self away from the hot-wings (food) and the wide-screen (circuses) and rise-up angry.

Et Tu Brute.

 


P.S. I would like to suggest that Forbes magazine have a yearly top 10 of the worlds wealthiest financial criminals.
